AssessTech will be at AusRAIL 2022

Taking place from 5 – 7 December in Brisbane, AusRAIL is the national conference and exhibition of the Australasian Railway Association (ARA)…

organised annually to bring the industry together to engage on key issues in the rail industry.

The AssessTech team are attending and exhibiting at this year’s show.   Gabriel Stroud and Alice Barrett from the UK office will join our Business Development Manager for Australia and NZ Graham Force, to showcase how electronic competence management can help improve safety and reduce incidents.

In a CIRO talk at AusRAIL PLUS 2021, it was highlighted, “With autonomous vehicles and trains becoming more widespread, we need ensure we have the skills, knowledge, and systems to manage the operational side of the railway to ensure we reduce incidents and improve safety.  Extra training is required as well as new systems for example electronic competence management and familiarisation.  The technology will help speed up the transfer of knowledge, making training more efficient and more manageable.”  

As well as exhibiting at AusRAIL, Gabe and Alice will be joining the Railway Industry Association (RIA) on a trade mission supported by UK Department for International Trade (DIT) starting in Auckland New Zealand on 29th November, Melbourne on 30th Nov, Sydney on 1st and 2nd December and travelling to Brisbane on 5th December in time for AusRAIL.  They are keen to meet individuals in these regions from across metro rail, freight and passenger transport, who are interesting in finding out more about the benefits of electronic competence management.

I am really looking forward to meeting colleagues from across the rail industry in Australia and New Zealand over the next few months.  We’ve been on a journey in the UK for the last 12 years to shape processes and create solutions to improve safety.  I’m looking forward to sharing insights from AssessTech and the railway companies we work with, to help influence best practice in Australasia.  Competency Management is a checkbox exercise, but the benefits of developmental competence could help transform assessments for the industry.
